Two of my faves are ArcSyn and BioTek 2. Not much discussion on either one lately. What are yours?

+1 for biotek

all of the internal synths in applications like Bitwig, Ableton, Cubase, etc that are dismissed by people who don't know what they're talking about.

Cypher 2 and Strobe 2 - more advanced and powerful than most of the VSTs that people rave about.

Wiggle. A real gem but rarely see any comments. And when I do, it's mostly whining and complaining.

I don't believe in conspiracies, so when most people don't like a synth, there are probably good reasons for that.

no interest in what ppl are or are not talking about. I prefer to use what works for me.

I’m surprised FingerFiddle doesn’t get more attention, even though it’s an iOS app.

It makes me think of pretty powerful but NLA stuff like White Noise Audio's synths, or ConcreteFX Kubik.. just because it's no longer available doesn't mean they no longer work.

Discontinue use if rash or irritation develops.

I think the developer has considered making it also a MIDI controller, but I’ve not heard anything from him more on the subject. I think it would be handy for Chet Singer’s bowed Reactor ensembles.
